I landed 7 keepers today at a public spot and threw back at least a dozen undersized ones in about 3 hours of fishing. Google Earth is your friendYour in Maryland the land of "Pay to Play"
Plenty of free spots to catch Yellows.
PM me and I'll let you know where.
Check your Pmail.Sounds good guys, Thx,

PM me .
Jerry, Thanks for reposting your drawing. Regarding storing the pre-tied rigs. Are your storing each one separately in a bag or do you have a means of storing multiple rigs in one bag? Also, what's the advantage of the ugly knot?Following up on Al's post, plastics in most shapes and forms will catch fish so long as they are less than 3". Silk chartreuse, or green chartreuse are my preferred colors but other colors will work. Gulp minnows work very well. I pre-tie some rigs at home and put them in small plastic bags so I can re-rig quickly if I break off. I use eight or ten pound braid on the reel and either 10 or 12 lb. mono for the terminal rigging. I pour my jig heads on light wire hooks so much of the time I can straighten the hook and get the entire rig back. I will repost the drawing of how I make up the rig. There are a couple of changes that I now do differently from the drawing: As I said, I use 10 or 12 lb. mono instead of the 25-30 that I originally used. I use a 1/32 ounce jig head instead of a plain hook but the plain hooks work well too. I tie the droppers a little longer so the jig heads will hang down nearer the bottom. I use six turns through the knot when making the loop for the lure hanger. One more thing, when I pre-make my rigs, I do not tie the top loop for the rig to line connection. Instead, I leave five or six inches of mono above the top hook. I then tie the rig directly to the line with what Joe Yack calls an ugly knot. Basically you make a loop with the terminal rig line and the braid, then make five turns through the loop with the tag ends of both the terminal rig mono and the braid, moisten, pull the knot down tight and trim the tag ends.
Depending on depth and amount of current, I go as low as 1/2 oz. and up to 1 oz. on the sinker.
